    you sound like a person that I may respect... the dilemma is determining what is fair. The 22% territorial figure you quote is only partly accurate. You omit the 1st partition of Palestine. 80% of British mandate Palestine was split of from Jewish settlement and sovereignty in favor of Jordan. The fact is that a solid majority of Jordan is Palestinian. The remaining 20% retained the name of Palestine until Israeli statehood was achieved in 1947. The 22% remaining portion is the West Bank and Gaza. Palestinian leaders state that they require a connecting corridor through Israel. that territory expands the 22%. It is my hope that the Palestinians will stop placing impediments and join Israel in Peace negotiations without preconditions. Thus far they have been steadfast in their refusal.
